    Mak, I'm confused too. We've had several threads on this and dated 3 knives. So, are we on the red birch laminate or cocobolla? DM

    Buck Sharpening Methods

    Yes, what I plan on doing with it dictates to sharpening. If it's for lunch apple, sharpening a pencil and cutting a rope? Then 16-17* and 300 grit. The other blades are not quite long enough for slicing up a apple. So, splinters, opening Mail and cleaning finger nails. So, 17* at 4-500 grit...

    Buck Sharpening Methods

    Veltic, at 280, 320 - 400 grit the edge is plenty refined. For my knives I stop at 180 grit. Good luck fishing. DM

    Buck Sharpening Methods

    Veltic, I use a Spyderco ceramic, at times, one side fine the other, ultra fine for scissors and tuning my double edge razor blade. For me to use it on a knife it would have to be at the owners request. DM

    Buck Sharpening Methods

    3 stones, a coarse 120 grit, medium 180 grit and a fine 280 grit. Norton has changed the stone holder they come with. Another good option is the JUM-3 stone. A same size 2grit stone, coarse & fine SiC. Then get that stone holder. You won't wear it out in you lifetime. DM

    Buck 124 Pre 1986?

    No, that's not what I'm saying. I'm saying Buck's early knives were a semi- hollow grind with convexing near the edge. I brought the topic to the front page, See the topic, 'Buck's grinds'. Joshua's knife has the 'B' grind, labeled in that topic. This grind determines the year. Or year group...

    Buck 124 Pre 1986?

    The model in your post 15 has a semi- hollow grind. Making the steel 440c. Grip the blade at the spine between your index finger & thumb. Slide this grip to the edge. The steel is thicker near the edge. Creating a convex. Search in this forum. I drew diagrams of these examples and posted those...

    Makael, what's the next to the last model? Thanks, DM

    Can you guys please help date my Buck 124?

    If your knife has a convex hollow grind, it's a sure bet the blade steel is 440c. I rarely see maroon micarta on that model. Black micarta is more common. DM

    Straight Razor Issue

    Well, straight razor & double edge razor shaving is an area that obsessing over blade sharpness is acceptable. So, glad you got a good shave. DM
